Belal Muhammad told he needs “Jesus” after dubbing UFC champion Sean Strickland as “the easiest path to double champ status”

Harry Kettle - September 14, 2023

Belal Muhammad has received some criticism for going after Sean Strickland following his title win at UFC 293. Over the course of the last few years, Belal Muhammad has turned himself into a real contender at welterweight. He’s put together a nice win streak, he’s built a new persona, and he’s not too far away from a title shot. As it turns out, though, Muhammad is also pretty interested in a move to middleweight at some point in the future.

Regardless of who you believe, White has certainly stuck to his guns on several occasions – for better or worse.

Jorge Masvidal

WATCH | Jorge Masvidal makes debut as runway model in New York City

Josh Evanoff - September 13, 2023

Former UFC welterweight title challenger Jorge Masvidal was recently spotted in New York City. ‘Gamebred’ famously retired earlier this year after suffering his fourth loss in a row to Gilbert Burns. Prior to that defeat, Jorge Masvidal had suffered lopsided losses to names such as Colby Covington and Kamaru Usman. With that in mind, it was an easy answer for the Miami native to hang it up after UFC 287.

Kamaru Usman, Leon Edwards

Kamaru Usman on Leon Edwards trilogy fight: "I probably should have taken a little bit more time off"

Fernando Quiles - September 13, 2023

Former UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman believes he shouldn’t have rushed fighting Leon Edwards a third time. Usman looked dominant during his run as the 170-pound kingpin. He defeated the likes of Tyron Woodley, Gilbert Burns, Colby Covington (twice), and Jorge Masvidal (twice). On August 20, 2022, Usman was well on his way to securing his sixth successful UFC welterweight title defense when a late head kick from Leon Edwards ended the championship run.

UFC CEO Dana White has "no clue" what's next for Conor McGregor

Fernando Quiles - September 13, 2023

If UFC CEO Dana White truly knows what’s going on with Conor McGregor, he isn’t letting the public know. McGregor has been out of action since fracturing his tibia and fibula in a July 2021 trilogy bout against Dustin Poirier. Since that time, McGregor has exited the USADA testing pool. The “Notorious” one bulked up considerably during his recovery time, and many have wondered if he’ll ever return to the lightweight division.

Sean O'Malley

Sean O’Malley weighs in on Sean Strickland’s title win over Israel Adesanya at UFC 293: “It didn't look like the Izzy that fought Alex Pereira”

Harry Kettle - September 13, 2023

UFC star Sean O’Malley has given his thoughts on Israel Adesanya’s loss to Sean Strickland at UFC 293. Last weekend, Sean Strickland shocked the world. He did so by defeating Israel Adesanya via unanimous decision to capture the UFC middleweight championship. While Strickland’s performance was incredible, it’s also worth noting that ‘Stylebender’ looked particularly poor on the night. In the eyes of many pundits, of course, this was due to the great work done by Strickland, but Adesanya’s shortcomings also need to be acknowledged.
